Immigration judges have refused to disclose whether a Zimbabwean murderer has been allowed to stay in Britain on human rights grounds.

Bernard Finlay was found guilty of stabbing a mother of two to death with three kitchen knives and a cleaver in 1997.

The attack on Tracy Self, 36, was witnessed by her teenage nephews Andrew and Lee.

When Finlay was released on parole last year Theresa May, the Home Secretary, attempted to deport him. But he appealed claiming his “right to family life” would be infringed if he was removed.

The immigration tribunal held an initial hearing followed by an appeal, which then ordered the case to be heard a third time. But the court has refused to disclose the final decision.

It means the public will not be able to learn whether a convicted foreign killer has won the right to live in Britain indefinitely…

My guess is that he still in the UK, or they would say so. The judges are total idiots. No wonder there is a backlash.
